The Invest Southwest initiative spotlights communities that have a history of disinvestment and poverty and offers new economic development opportunities to Chicago’s westside. An UIC Great Cities Institute report commissioned by Lawndale Christian Development Corp. examines the trends for potential growth and the economic needs for residents of North Lawndale — who wins, who loses, who gets to stay and who goes.
This panel will explore the the impact of gentrification and displacement with the potential benefits for existing community residents.
